Pelicans waiting to catch a fish. I like the one in the front with his mouth already open!

Habituellement, je ne suis pas une fan des photos animalières en plongée, mais celle là est vraiment excellente. Bravo Elaine.
Et puis, j'adore les Pélicans.
Bonne journée

Wonderful image. It made me stop and look closer. The unusual perspective works well. The arrangement of the pelicans, the colors and textures of the water, the perspective all make this both a realistic image and a partly abstract image.
